• One telescope to do everything, with EAGLE

    Is it possible to have a single telescope to observe and take pictures of any object in the Universe, easy to use, power and transport? Is it possible to have a telescope that has the power of a small astronomical observatory but with the portability of an amateur telescope? After more…

  • Star Adventurer versus EAGLE CORE kit: astrophotography with DSLR camera

    Star Adventurer and EAGLE CORE kit allow you to track the apparent motion of the stars in the sky and, if you have a DSLR camera, allow you to record long exposures of deep-sky objects such as galaxies, nebulae or star clusters. But how long? In fact, the longer the exposition time that our instrumentation will allow us…

  • Celestron EdgeHD: versatile telescope, many applications

    Celestron EdgeHD telescopes are the evolution of classic Schmidt-Cassegrains: not only they can be used in visual (unlike the SC, they are perfect also with very large apparent field of view eyepieces) and for planetary and lunar photography but, thanks to dedicated focal reducers, they are great instruments for long-exposure astrophotography. In this article…

  • Telescope mount, what to choose

    Telescope mount, what to choose: “Power is nothing without control”, as stated by an advertisement, applies to telescopes as well, especially in astrophotography when taking long-exposure pictures of objects that are too faint to be seen. In fact, in order to take picture of celestial objects by using telescopes, it is…

  • PLUS: Prima Luce Universal System

    PLUS is the system of dovetail bars and rings for telescopes designed by PrimaLuceLab in order to connect in a modular way telescopes and accessories in a stable manner and without flexures. All elements are made of high-strength aluminum, sandblasted, with high thickness red anodizing treatment. All PLUS elements are designed to…

  • Softwares for Eagle

    People asks us what what are the softwares for Eagle that can be used in astronomy and astrophotography . The simple answer is pretty much everything! Eagle in fact also incorporates a computer with Windows operating system and then lets the user install and use the software they prefer. You can use…

  • A Backyard Observatory

    One of the higher ambitions of many amateur astronomers is to have a backyard observatory. Who has available a sky with not too high light pollution in fact would like to have his telescope already installed and ready to use, without the need to assemble all the components each time to observe or…

  • Autoguide flexures

    Autoguide flexures: the use of an autoguider to improve the tracking accuracy of the telescope mount not only requires a sensitive camera and a good guide telescope (or an off-axis guider) but also a properly machined mechanical system that is able of supporting it without problems or flexures.
